Laser Hair Removal

Using the Cutera Laser, Laser Hair Removal offers a targeted approach to reducing unwanted hair on the body. Emitting a concentrated light beam absorbs pigment from hair follicles, which disrupts the hair’s growth cycle. This treatment is effective for various body areas, including the legs, arms, back, underarms, and bikini. Known for its precision, it targets coarse, dark hairs without damaging the surrounding skin.

In West Des Moines, IA, Laser Hair Removal suits individuals tired of traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking. This technology is effective across various types of skin and hair colors, although it works best on those with contrasting hair and skin colors. Results become apparent after the first few treatments, with more permanent results typically observed after several sessions. The duration of effectiveness varies, but many experience long-lasting hair reduction. Book an appointment at Aesthetic Collective in West Des Moines, IA, today to say goodbye to your unwanted hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal


Good candidates are those looking for a long-term solution to remove unwanted hair. Ideal candidates have dark hair and lighter skin, but recent technological advances have made treatment possible, even for people with darker skin and lighter hair.

You might notice hair reduction after the first treatment, but significant results typically require several treatments spaced out over several weeks to capture all hair growth phases.

Results vary by individual, but many experience long-lasting hair reduction for months or even years. Some individuals may require periodic touch-up treatments.

There is minimal downtime; most can resume daily activities immediately. Temporary redness and swelling may occur, but these should resolve within a few hours.

Before treatment, avoid sun exposure, waxing, and plucking for six weeks to preserve the integrity of the hair follicle. After treatment, apply sunscreen to treated areas and avoid heat treatments such as saunas.

Patients will wear protective eyewear during treatment. The technician will use a hand-held laser device adjusted according to the target hair’s color, thickness, and location. Most sessions last minutes to an hour, depending on the area treated.
